This form of Phentermine has been combined with a resin to make a slow release capsule that helps prolong the effects of Duromine. Duromine is made by 3M Pharmaceuticals and is marketed throughout Australia and New Zealand. In Australia, Duromine capsules come in three different strengths: 15 mg, 30 mg and 40 mg in blister packs of 30 capsules.

Duromine is recommended for individuals who are classified as overweight or medically obese. If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more or if you have a BMI of 27 or greater and have the risk of comorbidities such as diabetes type-2, high cholesterol or high blood pressure you are considered a candidate for Duromine. This weight loss drug is not recommended for children under 18 years of age or the elderly.
